Destiny 2 buffing Drifter drops in 2.2.1 patch
So it turns out that a Tweet that many thought might be a joke actually isn’t. I’m of course talking about something that has Destiny 2 fans really excited about the current top tier of content in the shooter. This excitement is the result of a now confirmed announcement that Bungie would be buffing drop rates in some content.
In particular, a couple very popular game modes are getting improved drop rates. The new game modes added in the Season of The Drifter content series, Gambit Prime and The Reckoning, will be getting significantly better loot with these changes.
The Reckoning and Gambit Prime are the two new game modes were added to Destiny 2 in Season of the Drifter. These persistent PvE modes allow players to farm loot and faction rep by repeating various challenges. And with this new patch, that grind is about to get a bit easier.
The general idea is that these two modes will now grant rolls for pretty much all of the Drifter gear. This includes the Reckoning exclusive drops as well by the way, so Gnawing Hunger, Just In Case, and Doomsday can now be obtained much quicker.
”Most weapons will have a chance to drop at the end of Gambit Prime matches. Your drop chance will also increase in both Gambit Prime and the Reckoning every match you don’t get a weapon to prevent long droughts without a drop,” said Bungie’s community manager.
So let’s run down exactly what has changed with the new 2.2.1 patch in Destiny 2. Fir starters, Ghost, ship, and Sparrow cosmetics for Dreaming City have “doubled, tripled, or more for their respective activities,” while cosmetics for the Last Wish raid have “doubled, tripled, or more for their respective checkpoints.” A handful of Exotic weapons and gear were tweaked too, like One Thousand Voices exotic fusion rifle. Cayde’s Stash, Dreaming City, and Tangled Shore lore items should also be slightly more common with this update.
Destiny 2 is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
